Defiance (2008) - Was really excited for this when I first saw the previews, so even though there were 5 movies in theaters that I wanted to watch this weekend, this was the first that was checked off. While it didn't live up to the hype I created for it, it was still solid. The story is solid, Daniel Craig, Liev Schreiber, and Mia Wasikowska (who will be Alice in Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland) were all great, even with the forced russian accents. The story was emotional and the action scenes sounded amazing. 8/10
Frost/Nixon (2008) - Amazing film. Was surprised how blown away I was by it. Frank Langella is by no means a front runner for the Oscar, but if he somehow manages to win, I don't think a single person will be upset about it. The supporting cast of Oliver Platt, Sam Rockwell, and yes, even the Bacon all play their roles beautifully. It also gives a lot of insight at the behind the scenes of what David Frost went through. Having seen the interviews before seeing the movie, the movie really makes you appreciate everything the people behind the interviews went through to get them made. Highly recommend. 10/10
I've also been watching Extras on DVD. Ricky Gervais is a genius. Nuff said.
